Dominican Republic Safety

Recommended Posts

How true is it that Dominican Republic resorts doesn’t allow guests to leave the resort and to explore the island?

That is not true. Guests are free to do whatever they would like including off resort excursions.

This was about 10 years ago, but, we were told that we COULD but that we shouldn't- we did anyway. We weren't going on any planned excursions though, just exploring on our own. That being said, I wouldn't do it again. I didn't feel distinctly unsafe but I didn't exactly feel great, to be honest. 

Our resort also had a dude with a machine gun at the edge of it, telling us not to continue because they wouldn't be able to protect us, and that there were dangerous people in the jungle? But then we heard that people started that rumor bc there are rich people living in there and don't want to be bothered, so who knows if we were in any real danger or not lol.

(On our trip we also saw another guy with a machine gun walking towards a goat... not sure what happened to that goat. But lots of machine guns lol.)

    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
